Checking out there new digs for the next couple of days!
Aren't we just a cutie, so fluffy! He didn't know if it was a jenny or jack. Well be trying to find that out tomorrow~didn't want to stress the poor little thing to bad! The baby was alittle stand offish today. I will be getting a halter on him/her real soon and start handling.
Okay, so I go get little cowgirl and I tell her what is at home and tell her the oldest donk will be finding a great new home to live. She's okay with that, as long as the baby stays! (I knew that was coming!) I explained to her about these donks and to not go around behind them, yada yada yada. So we are out getting everyone in there places for feeding and I look up and there she is! I swear! She is just talking to him and rubbing on him. She has a way with animals I tell ya!! I was that way when I was younger and I still am. I just love animals and they love me.
Look what I have in my house in a big blue bucket! 5 chicks! Whatever it was that killed the chick a couple of nights ago has not been back. Well today when I left to go get little cowgirl from school the hen and chicks where in the pasture. When I came back and we go out to see the new donks, I found the hens feathers everywhere. The 5 chicks were out in the pasture with the rooster. So whatever it is, came out in broad daylight and killed her! And plus I was only gone about 30 minutes. Jeez, that is scary that whatever it is, is not afraid of coming up in the daylight. Of course hubby still is thinking it is a coyote, which means they are no longer afraid. Which is even scarier when I think of all the times little cowgirl plays outside. Would this thing be bold enough to come up and get her? He was telling me of a story of some people that had been feeding the coyotes where they worked. All of a sudden the coyotes started attaching the people! Why would anyone think it's okay to feed the coyotes? I know we always kill them when we see them. They are such a nuisance to our animals.
